Beautiful and private

This campground is a small, quiet, no reservation campground with single and double sites. Overlooks the beautiful snake river with hiking path. Bear boxes, level tent sites, picnic tables and water. No electricity. Tall pines.

We hiked down to the hydroelectric dam where the buffalo river joins the snake river. Picturesque! The only drawback is that strangely, the sound of the hydroelectric plant becomes louder at night.

Would stay there again.

Quiet gem nestled amongst nature

This was an unexpectedly nice place. The long drive down the dirt road brings you away from the highway and close to the river. Even at 5 pm there were open sites. A couple sites are double sites and priced accordingly. 

There is a gravel pad for parking, tent and picnic table. Surrounding that is forest and flowers. These obstruct direct view of the neighbors on one side and minimize viewing the others. 2 vault toilet locations with numbered water faucets. 

Suggestion: site 9 has the restroom light shiny into it. We were fine because our teardrop had no windows in that direction. 

My dog and I headed out on the short path from the campground (it leaves from one of the campsites). It joins the Box Canyon Trail and you have a choice of two directions. We went left and found a long but easy hike giving views of the river and even a waterfall. People could be seen fishing and also rafting/tubing down the river. There are other national forest campgrounds in the area with a variety of activities. This is a place to visit!
